Gave Without Taking?
Prince Andrew is an utterly unimportant person. Ghislaine Maxwell's and Jeffrey Epstein's British connection that matters is to Peter Mandelson, who pretty much ran the Labour Party when it was last in government, and who is back running it when, sceptical though we ought to be of such things, it is once again ahead in the polls.
In the meantime, Mandelson has been European Commissioner for Trade, President of the Board of Trade, Lord President of the Council, and First Secretary of State. In all but name, he was Deputy Prime Minister under Gordon Brown, and arguably under Tony Blair as well. Prince Andrew has never even run his own bath.
